"Hey Jude! What is Hawk and Lily?"
Driven by a love of nature and movement, I believe in encouraging everyone to find true bliss by learning how to thrive both on and off the mat through inner and outer strength-building activities. Mostly, I'm here to help make your dreams come true, because the more I can support you to live your purpose, the more you'll be able to inspire that in others and continue to grow it forward.
I often get asked what Hawk and Lily means: the "Hawk" represents inner wisdom and power; the "Lily" connotes beauty and grace. Together, Hawk and Lily is a means to explore the essence of who you really are and reconnect to the joy you were born with. (Turns out, my Chinese name also means "Hawk" when pronounced in a different Mandarin intonation.)
Everything I share is based on firsthand experience. After overcoming a 15-year battle with multiple versions of eating disorders, I realized it was vital for me to learn how to play again in order to make life worth living. By being around friends who are truly passionate about what they love to do, I became inspired to discover this joy for myself and ultimately, rediscovered how to have fun again. And, play has brought me all the way to now live in beautiful Hawaii!
The best part about the journey towards healing is that we all have the power to be happy. Sometimes, it just takes a nice reminder, a spark of creativity, and a nudge of loving support to reconnect with one's innate joy. That's what Hawk and Lily aims to do — inspire every individual to define her or his own practice of living, to love life and thrive like never before.
With a personal yoga and healing practice that combines ongoing decades of spiritual learnings around the world, intuitive wisdom, and distinctly complementary Western and Eastern approaches, I infuse what I've learned from master teachers & personal experiences into Hawk and Lily.
Through soulful music, simple meditations, and a hearty amount of fun as we make your bliss come true, I welcome you to take a bit of time for yourself to be strong, wild and joyful. Come play with Hawk and Lily today!
